-- perhaps israel -- would face. they've already tested their missiles to show what a retaliatory strike on tel aviv would be. these drills also have the intended consequence of raising the price a little bit. the iranians are saying, okay, it's going to cost more if you bomb us, therefore, if we come to the negotiating table, we want more. and this all has to be looked at in the prism, if you will, of u.s./israel relations after the elections here. the prime minister here in israel, prime minister netanyahu, and president obama have a very icy relationship. the prime minister all but endorsed governor romney in the past election, and there's been a lot of fear here that now a second term president obama will take a much tougher line against israel when it comes to iran, when it comes to the palestinians. there has been some vocal, hostile, very negative reaction here by israeli politicians to president obama's re-election, and there's a lot of anger at the prime minister for making israel and the united states' support of israel a partisan issue, a political issue during the presidentia
conference since the election. and israel retaliates for rocket attacks with deadly strikes and extremist targets. now hamas is warning that the gates of hell have been opened. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> eight days after his re-election, president obama faced reporters in the midst of an unfolding scandal and with a potential economic crisis holding over his head. but he only got riled up when he responded to republican criticism of his united nations ambassador susan rice. more on that coming up. standby. but first, the president's careful responses about the investigation of this former cia chief david petraeus and on negotiations to avoid what's called the fiscal cliff. our white house correspondent jessica yellin was over at the east strip of the white house. you had a chance to speak to the president and ask him about that looming fiscal cliff. >> reporter: hi, wolf. that's right, i did. i asked the president why anyone should believe that he won't cave off of his position that he will not extend bush tax cuts for the wealthiest since he did just that in 20

in gaza rained down on israel this week. israelies were injured and at least one was killed. but it sure is right -- absolute right of self-defense is responded to defend its people. prime minister netanyahu said it best. the terrorists are committing a double war crime. they fire at israeli citizens and they hide behind palestinianian civilians. but the government in egypt, which was backed by the administration, has condemned israel, not hamas. the terrorist group hamas doesn't want peace with israel. it wants war. it kills israeli citizens and then hides behinds the skirts of palestinian women. israel has the moral right and duty to defend itself from the bar barrack hamas. the united states should be in total support of israel, our ally. the u.s. should be bold in its condemnation of hamas and the u.s. should be bold in this continuing war by terrorist, like hamas, on civilized nations and that's just the way it is. the speaker pro tempore: for what purpose does the gentleman from oregon rise? the gentleman is recognized for one minute. mr. blumenauer: thank you, madam speaker. perha

, our starting point this morning, israel mobilizing thousands of troops for a possible full-scale ground war with hamas. violence in the region intensifying overnight. the palestinian militants launched hundreds of rockets into israeli territory. air raid sirens sounding in tel aviv. that's the very first time that's happened since the gulf war. israelis responded by pounding hundreds of terror sites as they call them in gaza with artillery fire. ben wedeman reporting live now from jerusalem. we know, ben, that the israelis have called up 16,000 reservists. what exactly are they going to be doing? >> well, what they'll be doing is heading down into the area around gaza. very similar to what we saw in 2008, 2009, when they had a similar outbreak of violence between the two sides. we also know that there's a lot of heavy armor, lots of tanks being transported to the area around gaza, as well, for a possible ground incursion. but what we saw back in 2008-2009, was that it was several days of fairly intense israeli air strikes that preceded ground invasions. now what we've heard
meeting of the arab league after today's airstrikes by israel into gaza. these strikes hitting hamas targets all across the region, killing one of the group's top military commanders. now an israeli military spokesman is predicting days of fighting with the palestinians. leland vittert is live in israel near the border with gaza. what is going on, leland? >> reporter: right now, according to hamas militant organization they have quote, opened the gates of hell. there has been a declaration of war they say about the israelis by this airstrike. israelis providing video of the moment they killed ahmed jabari, the lead are of hamas militant tant wing. many are comparing assassination of him as nating usama bin laden. israelis launched operation cloud of pillar which is targeted assassination of number of hamas militants and islamic jihad and going off their warehouses which have a number of mass weapon storage facilities. we're here talking right now there are dozens of airstrikes going on over the gaza strip. large fireballs coming up from inside gaza. and they say a cloud of pillar wil

cause of death is listed as a stroke. many palestinians believe he was poisoned by israel. that something israel denies. the bottom line here in life he was controversial and in death, bill, he also remains very controversial. bill: what is this pallonium poison? >> it is a radioactive element that can be extremely, extremely deadly. according to u.s. regulatory, nuclear regulatory commission it emits radiation that can essentially destroy human tissue. it can not we are told penetrate skin. if ingested it can cause deadly harm to dna, to main body organs and as well as we are told the immune system. and this particular isotope is so powerful, bill, that we're told that an amount as small as the size of a grain of salt can be deadly. another thing to keep in mind is that it decays very, very quickly. it has a very short half-life. in other words, officials say, after 2 1/2 years it might be very hard to detect. that means after arafat has been buried since 2004, whatever results are reached might in fact be inconclusive. bill? bill: david lee miller, a good mystery you hav
. their relationship goes back years and years and years. in fact, i was reading one of the israeli newspapers. israel today ran no fewer than four opinion pieces just yesterday endorsing romney. what happens now, christiane, in this relationship between netanyahu and obama? >> well, what happens now is that obama is the president of the united states. netanyahu is the prime minister of israel. and they have to work together. these are two countries which stand side by side. there in no doubt in anybody's mind that the united states stands firmly for the security of israel, the intercommunity knows. it yes, there has been a cool relationship between netanyahu and obama, however netanyahu did congratulate the president this morning and said the strategic reliance between israel and the u.s. is stronger than ever. i will continue to work with president obama in order to assure the interests that are vital to the security of the citizens of israel. so, again, no doubt where the united states stands the strong security and protection of israel. the real issue of course that has divided them, one, iran. a
of that group has been taken out. an israeli airstrike that killed the commander of this military wing. israel is now saying that this is just the beginning. leland vittert is live in jerusalem. what can we report? reporter: right now there are some myths to the israeli version of killing osama bin laden. ahmed jabari had been running this for 10 years. he killed so many israeli people. he was killed in a targeted killing in the gaza strip. a missile took out a card he was riding in. it leads to more targeted killing of militants there. the military now calling this operation cloud pillar. we just got off the briefing with the israeli military says it is going to be in operation against hamas and islamic jihad. also some of their camps and weapons storage facilities there, inside of the gaza strip. what we are waiting for right now is the reciprocity multiplier to begin. over the past week or so there have been about 160 rockets fired out of the gaza strip into southern israel. those rockets believe messing up life in southern israel. obviously, they have the potential to kill and injure a num

that would boost their status on the world stage. the united states and israel have lobbied hard against the move warning it could backfire and actually set back palestinian hopes for full statehood and negotiated peace. but with some key european nations on board, palestinians view the vote as a game changer. cnn's frederik pleitgen reports from the west bank city of ramallah. >> reporter: the final rally before heading to new york, palestinian president mahmoud abass addressing supporters. the final decision is to head to the united nations tomorrow he says to enhance the position of palestine to an observers state in the united states and the first step to achieve all our national palestinian rights. if the palestinians win a majority in the u.n. general assemb assembly, the u.n. will recognize palestine as a nonmember observer state like the vatican. its territory to include the west bank, gaza and east jerusalem. >> for the world to begin to rectify a grave historical unjustice that the palestinians had undergone beginning with the creation of the state of israel in 1948. >> reporte

or not egypt would have a role, maybe a cease-fire between hamas and israel. we did see that come to fry tuition. this week we're talking about something completely different, michael. what should the role of the united states be? and what have you heard about reports potentially of military coup, the military in egypt we supported so much over the years rising up against morsi? >> well, jenna, this is sort of back to the future because remember hosni mubarak wanted a deal with the united states got one for a long time, look he will be responsible player in the region but you ignore what he does inside of egypt. this is coming right on the heels of gaza. the last move morsi made was on the heels of a big terrorist attack in the sinai. he is hoping for a free pass from the united states and international community. ignore what i'm doing at home and concentrate on my role in the region. i think it is important we not do that. as for the military, jenna, you remember the supreme council of armed forces. nobody talks about them because morsi usurped the role they had in all. i'm not sure the
